Default Speed/Motion: 4 wings are better than 2

I was lucky enough to catch a shot of this Peregrine falcon returning to a Cottenwood tree to roost and have lunch. I had been shooting flight shots of white Snow geese so my exposure compensation was off a little bit for the darker falcon. Still, I was quite pleased at the luck of catching such a dynamic hunter returning with it's prey. ( which is a hen Bufflehead duck)

Cheers,
Steve

Wonder how those extra wings spread out like that effect the aeodynamics? Looks like the falcon is used to dealing. Nice capture.

Thanks Caryl. I already did. I didn't want to over do it.
